I'm a 52 yr old married, mother of 4. I've struggled with my weight since puberty and with my kids births, came extra weight. I was always, with great effort and exercise, able to lose the weight until after the birth of child #4. Being in my 40's definitely changed my ability to get rid of the unwanted pounds and the fat was just stuck to me like GLUE.

I gave up very easily on each new WOE I tried and therefore just was stuck hovering between 168 and 182 (Ugh). After returning from a family vacation and going through the snap-shots I nearly gagged. Was that old looking, blob me? It certainly could not be. I finally realized that I really did look awful.

Here I am - nearly 10 years later and still fighting my weight. I have tried everything, including hypnosis (which worked really well for about 4 months) -- and now I'm back at 176.

I just started Paleo and it seems to be something I may be able to do. Wish me luck. I'm not averse to eating healthy - just surrounded by candy, cookies, cakes, and all the stuff that I really need to avoid. Sure is tough sometimes. I need support to do this.
